Yesterday I decided to go through Bob's closet and make him get rid of much of his stuff. You see, the man is a bit of a hoarder. And it is almost impossible to get him to throw stuff out. He finds sentimental attachment in the weirdest places. This photo to the right isn't the best, but you see, he has like 50 pairs of jeans. Most don't fit, many are ugly.
I wish I would have written down the excuses he had for every article of clothing that went into the "donate" pile. They were HILARIOUS. He probably didn't think so. He sounded like the people on the show. But evil me laughed often. It was a HUGE amount of fun for me. I am mean like that. Just laugh at the pain.
This t-shirt is the ugliest thing I have ever seen. First of all, it is paper thin and reminds me of something the guys from Jersey Shore would wear. Not a 42 year old, father of four. But he loves it. I tried to sneak this god awful thing into the "donate" pile, but he found it and took it out. I honestly hate this shirt.
Bob has two pairs of broom-ball shoes. He plays about six broom-ball games a year. I asked him why it is that he needs two pairs of broom-ball shoes. He says that this particular pair he uses to "kick it around town." I have never seen him wear these, ever. So they went into the donate pile. Because for god's sake, come on. For one thing, Bob doesn't "kick it around town." And when he does, he wears his Adidas shower shoes, like any other normal person...haha.
These golf shoes have been following us around for years.
Bob doesn't own golf clubs. So....gone.
This is Bob's favorite shirt. I didn't get a good shot of it. He even sewed a button on it. I have NEVER EVER seen him wear it. Ever. But he loves it. It is a nice shirt. Maybe he will wear it some day. I have no idea where it came from. And of course, I didn't try to sneak it out. Because I like it.
Here is a pile of his pants that we donated. I should have counted, but there are at least 20 in there. Many were bought when he was staying at the VA for some type of treatment. They just HAD to let him roam to the mall or Target at night. Of course I am kidding, but he hasn't worn some of these, ever. And there is even a pair or two in there that he claims he has "had since before we were married." Like that is a good thing. No, I tell him, that only proves that you have a hoarder-ish way. And there is only room for TWO mental illnesses in his brain. So out they go.
Why are we always broke? Well...I can't blame him totally. But dude, he liked to shop for awhile.
To the left are a pack of socks. No big deal right? But he has TWO FULL drawers of socks. And like I mentioned before, the man wears shower shoes. And even though it is getting cold out, there are no socks to be worn yet. At least it is only one pack.
It is hard to tell by this shot, but those are three pairs of Dr. Martin's, a pair of Red Wings, about three pairs of Sanuks, Keen, Puma, Nike and Adidas. These are the shoes of his that fit into the closet. There are more by the front door. Mind you, some of these he hasn't wore in ages. Some he forgot he had. He has more shoes than me by about 75%. I call not fair. My Tom's have holes in them and my boots have been repaired once.
Am I calling him out? Yep. But I am also saying that it is hard for Bob to do much around the house. And yesterday he did a lot. And he let a lot go. And although I feel like I got screwed in the shoe department, I am proud of that almost hoarding dude.
Oh, and when I was going to drop off the clothes at Goodwill, Bob told me to make sure I told the folks there that, "This shit is the good shit, so you might want to check it out."
Also, I just read this post to him and he said that he misses a lot of those shirts.
You'll notice I've left out my side of the closet. Mind your business you nosey bunch. He is more than welcome to start a blog and tell my shit. Have a good day.
One more thing. I can't figure out how to get these pictures to line up right. Someday I'll figure it out. But until then, it will look really dumb. Maybe Wordpress is easier? I am afraid to switch. I suck at tech stuff. Enjoy!!
